The first day of school in Iran comes with its own rituals.

The summer season is over and it's time for kids to go back to school. Among all students first graders have a different story. On the first day of school parents like their children are anxious and happy at the same time. They go around watching their kids and taking photos to seize this unforgettable moment.

In Iran schools open to first graders one or two days before the official opening day so that the little kids can experience the new environment in an informal way and have fun.

There are one million and two hundred first graders in Iran; according to official figures there are over 14 million students in the country, studying at different levels. Although for some students school days might mean the end of holidays, every one of us now know it well that school days are an unforgettable part of our lives, which can never be repeated.

Seven-year-olds stepped into schools, the very place they are supposed to spend about nine months to learn from A to Z of what they will later need in their lives. Right there they will take first steps in their long march toward knowledge and science.
